Le Tour de Cat | August 13th @ 12:00pm

The Tour de France may be over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have our fun and prizes here in the ATL…stage-racing style! The Tour de Cat (Le Tour de Cat if you’re fancy) is a 3-stage race (time-trial, ‘sprinter stage’, and ‘climbing stage’) that will each contain single checkpoints, and will have both stage and overall tour place finishes (1st-3rd). Aggregate times will determine placing; however, non-race related time bonuses will be available after manifests have been turned in. Further race info:
